    what\'s a good low dollar stereo combination

    what would sound good in my suburban without making me broke? i want some bass but i don't want boxes filling up my space. are bass tubes ok for a suburban? i know i'm replacing the regular speakers and the stereo but i want do do something extra too.

    Well I would upgrade the size of speakers inthe back to 6x9's as for bass well tubes are ok but you could build side panels in the back for some 8's or tens. 8's need so little space. As for inexpensive CV's make a nice line and their 8's hit so hard. MTX is a nice choice to. You can get a nice thunder amp for cheap.

    I have a single 10" in a store bought box in the K5, It works VERY well, I have a 4/3/2 amp running it and that has its own crossover built in. The speaker box isnt mounted, so if i need the space, i just unhook the wires and remove. You might go with a single 12" since the Burban is much larger.
    This set up sounds very well, produces good bass and really only consists of 3 medium priced pieces......... Head unit, amp, speaker.
